Great tour and not just for 'foodies'

This tour is not only a great way to experience a taste of NYC's gourmet treats but will also satisfy the non-foodie members of your group with the guide's encyclopedic run-down on the history and quirky stories of the area. Don't miss the lobster chowder - an artery-clogging, gourmet delight you could stand your spoon up in!

Quite interesting tour

We had a nice tour through meatpacking district. To see the shops including some food is interesting and to hear some of the history too. Our guide Kurt appeared to be a bit of a chatter and that is an understatement. He talks the whole time but that seems to be normal in New York.

Absolutely a nice tour and definitely worth a recommendation to go to one of the nicest areas in NYC!

A good tour

The start of this tour was a bit awkward but once we got on the way it turned into an enjoyable few hours. There were numerous stops and the history of the market and the meatpacking district was interesting and fun.

The food was good, it didn't blow me away but it was enjoyable. The stops at both Mario Bartali & Morimoto's restaurants was interesting and if you aren't usually a fine diner this might have been the nudge you needed to give it a go. The last stop for pasta was definitely a highlight. There is plenty of food provided on the tour and it is definitely good value for money. The main negative for me was the almost "educational lesson" at the end of the tour of : why and how much one should tip the food industry, which was at the end of the tour. It was not necessary and detracted from the rest of the tour which was great. It would definitely not stop me from encouraging others to give this tour a go.

There were 3 of us on this holiday, and all of us would recommend this tour as a must to any one visiting New York, enjoyed all the food samples and thought the tour guild was absolutely brilliant.

Fun tour but too expensive
Fri, Aug 14, 09   11:30 AM Sheeran Male 20-29 International Tourist(s) Group of Friends
the tour is interesting and the guide is fun, but the amount of food is clearly insufficient and overall it does not represent great value for money.

Fun! Food! Entertaining!

My sister and I are from Canada. Neither of us had been to the Chelsea Market area before.

Darrell was an amazing tour guide! Full of history and knowledge of the Market and surrounding area! A well rounded tour not just about food! Really liked getting out into the neighbourhood as well.

Keep up the great work!

Great Tour
Sun, Aug 2, 09   11:30 AM BradCole Male 50-59 International Tourist(s) Family With Children
We toured the Chelsea Martket and Meat Packing District August 2. Our tour guide was Diana. Diana was a wealth of information, facts and figures. The food was superb and received a healthy portion at each stop. The fish shop was the best in my opinion, the soups offered were exceptional and tasty. Enjoyed seeing Mario Batali and Morimoto's restaurants, although not open for service we were allowed in as part of the Foods of New York tour. What would make this better if we were allowed to see the Food Network studio in the building. Overall, an exceptional tour and with fair value and would recommend highly.
